Here's another web update from Catalyst -- this one about HST: Late students undermine high school reform. It's so-called "enrollment creep"—a chronic
surge of students who register after the official start of the school
year—which regularly throws off academic timetables and forces teachers to
delay their lesson plans, sometimes for weeks.
"Chicago Public School’s multimillion dollar High School Transformation
project is forcing the district to confront a long-standing, but quiet
problem: Hundreds of freshmen don’t register for weeks after the first
day of school."
